A tale of two bigger iPhones

A tale of two bigger iPhones

One of the more popular rumors making the rounds right now is that Apple will release not one but two new, bigger iPhones this year. The first would be the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the second, a 5.5-inch Apple "phablet". These rumors aren't coming from overly sensational, overly outlandish sources,...

iOS 7.1: What did it fix for you and what's still broken?

iOS 7.1 is live for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and with it a whole bevy of fixes and additions. Since Apple makes updates so easy, and adoption rates are so high, that means many of you have likely taken the plunge already. It also means you've likely scoured through every change to find what'...

iPhone 6: Six things I'd like to see!

iPhone 6 fantasies will no doubt reach fetishistic levels at some point, but we're far enough out from the fall, and from the inevitable leaks that will come as fall approaches, that many possibilities, many dreams, remain open to us. What with the all the new Android phones at MWC dropping like...

Galaxy S5 or iPhone 5s: Which phone should you get?

Everything you need to know to choose the best phone for you — Galaxy S5 or iPhone 5s! The Galaxy S5 has only just been announced while the iPhone 5s has been available since September 2013. However, until the iPhone 6 launches — presumably in September of 2014 — they'll be the two top phones...
iPhone 5S and HTC One M8

The new HTC One (M8) and the iPhone 5s

If you want an aluminum phone, you've come to the right place. The iPhone is no stranger to metal, of course. (And presumably it'll stay that course with the iPhone 6 later this year.) But today, Android smartphone manufacturer HTC announced its newest flagship with an old name — the HTC One....
iPhone 5c review: 6-months later

iPhone 5c review: 6-months later

Editor's note: The iPhone 5c was released 6 months ago today. Since I've been using the iPhone 5s almost exclusively since then I wanted someone else, someone who's been using the iPhone 5c day in and day out, to write the follow up for Apple's other new phone. Someone perhaps not as steeped in...

RadioShack drops iPhone 5s pricing to $99 or score one for free when trading in an iPhone 4S

Like most things in the technology world, if you wait long enough a good deal is bound to be found eventually. Such is the case with the iPhone 5s as starting Friday, RadioShack is reducing their pricing for the latest iPhone down to $99 in-store with a qualifying two-year plan on AT&T,...
How can Apple avoid another iPhone 5c?

How can Apple avoid another iPhone 5c?

Apple doesn't break out sales numbers for individual iPhone models, but other companies keep an eye on things. And since the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s were introduced last fall, one thing's become clear: the iPhone 5c sales haven't burned up the charts. How can Apple avoid that going forward?...
5 problems a 5-inch iPhone solves for Apple

5 problems a 5-inch iPhone solves for Apple

I've been writing about a 5-inch iPhone 6 for well over a year now, but most of it has been long-form, exploring the market potential, screen resolution options, interface scaling issues, and why it all matters. This is the opposite of that. This is 5 simple reasons why a 5-inch iPhone 6 does...

Apple supposedly cutting iPhone 5c production in half due to low demand

Apple may be cutting production of the iPhone 5c in half due to demand being lower than expected. Sources say that production is currently at 300,000 units a day and will be cut down to 150,000 units a day. According to CTechnology, poor demand is due to the higher than expected price and the iPhone 5s outselling it.

Why is Apple the only one capable of making iPhone-class devices?

I've said numerous times over the last year or so that only Apple could have made the iPhone 5 (from which both the current iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are derived). That's earned me my fair share of raised eyebrows and heckles, largely because I've never taken the time to explain what I mean by that. Here's the explanation: No other company on earth right now could, nor likely would if they could, make a device that packs as much technology into as relatively small a frame, at such high a quality, as Apple did with the iPhone 5. And that statement can be true whether you think positioning themselves to be able to make an iPhone 5 was brilliant, or stupid. Here's why:

16GB iPhone: The low-storage survival guide

Maybe you wanted to save $100 and get the cheapest iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s you could, or maybe you were just desperate to get an iPhone, any iPhone, in the color and on the carrier you most wanted. Maybe you paid $1500 for a gold iPhone 5s without even checking how much storage it had! Whatever the reason, you're now stuck with 16GB and you're already running out of space. You can't download any more apps or games, you can't take any more pictures or videos, you can't even update when a new version of iOS 7 is pushed out. Nerd world problem, maybe, but you're frustrated, you're exasperated, and you don't want to live like this any more. What do you do?

T-Mobile US announces no-extra-charge data roaming and texting in 100 countries

T-Mobile US has gone rogue in recent months, zagging where big carriers previously zigged, and the latest example is their new data roaming plans, which they say are coming soon and will cover you in 100 countries at no extra charge. Fine print: You need a qualifying postpaid Simple Choice plan. Given how much roaming has traditionally cost - I think my last visit to the U.S. billed me out to $900 on voice and (mostly) data, if they come through in a meaningful way, this could be huge for travelers.

Apple reportedly expanding iPhone trade-in program to the UK

Back in August, before the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were announced, Apple launched an in-store iPhone trade-in program. Right now, it's exclusive to the U.S, but a new report from the folks at 9to5Mac suggests it will soon expand to British shores:

How good is the iPhone 5s camera? Enough to impress a National Geographic photographer!

On a recent trip to the Scottish Highlands, National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson decided to leave his Nikon DSLR camera at home and, instead, see what the iPhone 5s would allow him to capture. Turns out, a lot - and more than he expected. From the National Geographic's Proof:

How accurate is the digital compass and level on your iPhone 5s? [Poll]

How accurate is the digital compass and level on your iPhone 5s?

For a while now we've been seeing ourselves, and hearing from a lot of you about the magnometer (digital compass) in the iPhone 5s and how it's consistently presenting abnormal results, even by digital compass standards. Now I lack science powers enough to understand exactly how it's supposed to work, but ever since it launched in Android devices and the iPhone 3GS, I've never had great results with it. Frustrating, figure-8-circling, direction spinning results, yes. Great, no. But with the iPhone 5s, not great seems to have been taken to all new levels. Pun somewhat intended...

Best Buy offering iPhone 5c for $50

Best Buy is the latest to offer customers an extra incentives if they buy a new iPhone 5c - a $50 gift certificate. Sure, that's not the same as a real sale, but if you're happy returning that money to Best Buy at a later date, it reduces the on-contract price of a 16GB iPhone 5c to $49. Joanna Stern, ABC News:

Just two weeks after hitting the market, Best Buy

One place where Android and Windows Phones have the iPhone beat: Wi-Fi Calling

In most respects, I've been really happy with T-Mobile since I switched in April. I pay much less for service through T-Mobile than I did through either AT&T or Verizon, and on the odd occasion I've had to contact their customer service (only twice so far), I've been left feeling better than I did any time I ever had to contact their competitors. However, T-Mobile shares one flaw with those other services: their coverage sucks inside my house. That's why I want Wi-Fi Calling. It's a feature that T-Mobile has on several of its Android and Windows Phone handsets, but it isn't available on the iPhone. At least not yet.

In-store collection returns to the Apple Store for iPhone 5s, for now

Demand for the iPhone 5s is high, supplies are still low, but Apple has made available once more in-store collection for online purchases. The facility originally went live about a week ago following Apple's record opening weekend of sales, but quickly disappeared as supplies dried up once more. For now though, if you're still trying to get your hands on a new iPhone 5s, it's definitely worth taking a look.

iPhone 5s review

Every tick has its tock. Every leap forward in design, a follow up in performance, and optics, and special features. Every new iPhone, its S-class successor. That was the story of the iPhone 3GS in 2009 with its speed doubling, video recording, and voice control. Of the iPhone 4S in 2011, with its dual-cores, 1080p, and Siri. And its the story of the iPhone 5s in 2013, with its 64-bits, 120 frames-per-second, and its fingerprint ID sensor. It's the story of taking what is and making it into what's next. Of recognizing most revolutions don't happen during the span of a single keynote, but rather as the result of steady, steadfast innovation, iteration, and improvement.

The iPhone 5s is the new flagship phone from Apple. Like the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5s retains not only the same name, but the same design and many of the same features as its most immediate predecessor. Unlike any iPhone before it, however, the iPhone 5s doesn't get to be all new, all by itself. Not this year. This year it has to share the stage - and the shelves - with the far more colorful, arguably more fun, iPhone 5c. In a time when competition has never been stronger, the iPhone 5s is facing it even from Apple. Yet being the top-of-the-line iPhone has never been about total cost or popular appeal. It's been about being the top-of-the-line iPhone. It's been about giving us what Apple calls their most forward-thinking iPhone ever, in our hands, now, today. But now, today, is it forward thinking enough?

4G LTE now available from O2 UK on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c

Prior to the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c we learned that customers picking one up to run on the O2 network wouldn't get access to 4G LTE immediately. This was most likely down to Apple's certification process, but thankfully all that is now behind us, as the O2 UK Twitter account proudly tells us:
